spider web looking substance?
    #3254161 - 10/20/04 01:16 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

ok here's the deal..
i have a pot filled with the proper amount of vermiculite/ground brown rice flour.. i stuck it in the oven with the proper amount of water.. for a good 3 hours.. 6 hours after it was out of the oven i put an entire spore syringe (12cc) into it... that was 9 days ago.. now the top of it is FILLED with something that looks like a spiderweb? does anyone have any clue what this is?

has your jar started to colonize? if so, it could be wispy mycelium growing on the top.

how did you inoculate? did you just dump it on the top? the myc could be growing on the top if you did it that way.

if those aren't true and your jar isn't growing, i'd have to say it's probably cobweb mold. :frown: yucky stuff..

why are you opening your jars? they shouldn't be opened until they're done.

hrm, i've never known cobweb to be smelly like most contams... so not really... unless you know the smell of growing mushrooms. that's what mycelium smells like, it's a funky smell, i love it.

look at the PF Tek under the beginner's growing section. it'll show you how to inoculate right the next time. :smile:

hrm, the smell of psilocybin mushrooms is kind of funky... so it still could be mycelium... BUT-

personally, i'd just throw it out and start over. save yourself some time and worry.

oh, and thank you for knowing where "God if I have to die, you will have to die" came from. :smile: Old Modest Mouse is the best.

uh... there is a big problem with this procedure. You said a pot, right? so, if you put a pot of mixture in the oven, you basically boil off a ton of water, burn some substrate and such. If you didn't get it to high enough temp and for much longer than jars(it's bulkier and you'd have a harder time getting the core to heat up), you'll just end up with half unsterilized mush sitting on the bottom and dried or fried substrate on top. And don't pots have holes on the bottom?

I'm not going to conjecture it's complete waste and is bound for failure, but I'm very close to calling it that.

I hope it does work out for you, though. Good luck.

Sam
